Jackson Mississippi Transport
Hiring a car is the best way to get around in Jackson as many of the attractions lie outside the city. Parking is easy to find everywhere but downtown. The JATRAN bus is a reliable way to get around. It operates Monday to Friday 5.15am-7.45pm and on Saturday from 6.45am-6.45pm. Most routes operate every 60 minutes with limited service every 30 minutes on Routes 1, 8 and 12. A single one-way fare costs about $1.50. Metered taxis are available, but must be booked by phone at least 30 minutes in advance as cabs do not cruise or wait at taxi ranks.
